NEW – Self-neglect Guides

Southampton has seen an increase in the number and in complexity of safeguarding concerns that involve self-neglect. In response to this the Southampton Safeguarding Partnership have developed a suite of six ‘Self-neglect One Minute Guides’ that focus on key areas:

  • Overview of Self-neglect
  • Engagement
  • Hoarding
  • Homelessness
  • Alcohol and substance use
  • Trauma

These guides provide a wealth of information and support to practitioners considering the main issues, key learning, appropriate responses, how to achieve positive outcomes, questions to consider and include links for additional information. The resources are available to view below and can be downloaded.
